Topic: Death of the Old Republic (RPG idea)

So a while back I got an idea.

I sent a prompt out to a group of my friends and family. They all would start with the same opening, and I would gather them together and make them do a D’n’d type thing, without the rolling. (I would take care of that; basically they tell me what they wanted to do and I would spin a wheel to see what reaction would happen).

I ended up scrapping that idea for a Star Wars themed style idea as above. Since I know more about the universe than what I was doing.


Now, I need a little help.

Basically I’m doing a Force Awakens deal.

A “re-telling” of KOTOR 2, a “phantom menace” has eradicated the Jedi and Sith a-like. What ever remains of has sent a sort of beacon out to force sensitives to an Asteroid that has been found and used as a fueling depot/docking station.

This is the opening to draw in characters who can come up with a plethora of reasons to be there, and to give some people a chance to rebuild the order.

And there is a reason why KOTOR 2 is the inspiration. There will be characters and consequences from the first two games. I am taking a few liberties and a little fan fiction to make it work, but it’s all for fun.

Just trying to do an opening crawl for the players and go from there.

I actually made it better?-ish.

As a mini start is concerned.

Re: Death of the Old Republic (RPG idea)

Hundreds of ships are seen flying around. The echo has drawn far too many here, but only a few have truly heard it. Others were brought here for different reasons; bounties, work, an escape from their old life, or a fresh opportunity. Girowaa is about to become the start of something grand, and no one in the galaxy will be ready.

Closing in on the docking bay for Girowaa, a droid greets the traveler. “Hello, I am B7-F9, the protocol droid designated for new arrivals. Welcome to Girowaa. What is your name and state your business, for I can assist you in finding the best pathway around the station?”

So is this where we need to post character sheets or are we just jumping straight in with a "hi, I'm ..." And everything else about your characters will be revealed in due course?

Re: Death of the Old Republic (RPG idea)

Basically what I’m gonna do is have you flesh out your character while you learn about the world/asteroid/timeline. So if you are here to bounty hunt, I can get your backstory, and personality is something you control completely.

Re: Death of the Old Republic (RPG idea)

Is it bad that I kinda wanna keep my bounty hunter from the other RPG? lol

But sure, this weekend or something I'll go look up some races and names and stuff and actually create a basic character sheet. Well, the kind of stats thing we did in the other one. If that's what you want?

Also, how many characters are each person playing as given that it's gone quiet again?

Re: Death of the Old Republic (RPG idea)

It’s not bad at all, I might steal from myself as NPC’s people can interact with. Just minor changes to names or races.

I’m kinda mixing in attributes, skills, and the other general character creation together, but I try to have people flesh them out as it goes along.

I’m keeping 1 per person, unless someone wants to do more, I won’t stop anyone from taking multiple characters on.
